Sporting Activities

Sports codes have a Teacher in Charge, this changes depending on staff numbers, year levels, skills and expertise.

Although Teachers in Charge initiate the sporting activities and teams they are dependent on parents as coaches and managers to ensure the success of a team throughout the season.

Any parent who is willing to provide coaching, managing or assistance in any particular sports code should contact the Teacher in Charge of the sports code or the office.

Each year there are no guarantees that we will have student numbers, interest or parental involvement, however Teachers in Charge of the sporting code will do their utmost to facilitate a team.

Glenholme School supports and encourages our tamariki to be involved in sporting codes and subsidies are provided to make the fees more manageable for parents and whanau.

Swimming Pool

We are extremely lucky to have a lovely swimming pool which is heated and well maintained, with good quality changing sheds and toilets.

We aim to try to teach all children water confidence, water safety and basic swimming as a part of the compulsory Health and Physical Education Curriculum. Children are expected to swim as part of their learning programme, please help us by making sure that your child has named togs and towel during their swimming weeks.

If your child is too sick to swim then a note should be provided to the teacher. We do not allow children with open sores to swim for the welfare of all.

Outside the Classroom

  • There are many opportunities for students to take part in activities outside of the classroom which will broaden and enhance their education.
  • Many curriculum programmes incorporate excursions, visits, sporting and cultural exchanges and information gathering outside the school.
  • Parents will always be kept informed of excursions regarding Education Outside the Classroom via the classroom teacher.

The Generic Health and Permission Form provides adequate documentation to take students outside the school during school hours however if the excursion requires an overnight event then further permission and documentation will be provided for parents.

Out of Hours Sports

  • We have a lot of children involved in various sporting codes.
  • This is largely due to the high number of teachers who volunteer their time.
  • Please approach the school if you would like to assist.
  • If your child is playing please remember that the coaches and managers are volunteers, often parents, and they need all the support you can give.

Currently sports include:

Netball, Flippaball, Athletics, Swimming, Miniball, Hockey, Soccer, Touch Rugby and Rugby.
